Secure Voting

Here we can ensure that malpractise are kept at bay. Voting systems are widely used to collect the opinion confidentially and the results are manipulated to find out the person having the highest acceptance. The conventional voting as well as televoting systems do not supports any kind of protection for the votes that are already cast. 6) Image Comparison 7) Serial port communication 8) Vote Counting and result announcement module . In both the cases there is no security for the votes that are already cast.With the help of a very efficient FINGER PRINT IDENTIFICATION module.Here we are also providing an effective data base too. This is the case of normal voting systems. This new era of voting machines uses the most unique feature of a body for identification system.The main parts which has to be interfaced in this project are: 1) Voting Interface: A key pad is used and it is interfaced to micro controller 2) Alarm for fraud votings 3) Finger print module 4) Election members and voting information manipulation system 5) Web cam interface which capture and store voters photo. It happens in two ways1) The voting machine fails 2) The voting machine is captured and taken away by anti-social elements.OVERVIEW Collecting an opinion and selecting a representative from a group becomes necessary in a community living.

So that the administrator can later check out fraud users which are unidentified during voting time. alarm module for fraud voting. voter fingerprint storage. Software side mainly contains five modules:      Information management System Web cam interface module Image Comparison module Serial port communication Vote Counting and Result announcement module Information management module includes insertion. It also includes election vote storage. voting interface. Hardware part contains Finger print module. When the voter came for voting. Web cam interface module is mainly used to identify fraud voters. updation and deletion of different voters and also Election candidates. . etc. first he have to vote using finger print. and an LCD interface. at that instant itself a photo taken and stored against the voters ID.The whole project mainly divided into two sections: Hardware part and software part.

When the user press the button for Voting.Image Comparison module used to compare finger print taken from the voter and those already stored of previous voters. Also after processing. status about the voter is send via serial port to the hardware which then informs by alarm. Main aim of this is to identify fraud voting. Vote Counting and Result announcement module includes counting of stored vote from database. All the valid votes are counted against each voter and election winner declared by finding maximum votes among these. Serial Port Communicaion module mainly performs the functions of communication with the hardware. TOOLS & TECHNOLOGIES • • • • • • • • • • • • PHP Ajax Java Script XHTML XML CSS Fusion Charts SMTP mail server WYSIWYG editor MySQL Server Apache Sever Zend Studio . corresponding signal is send by the hardware which is taken via serial port. If the same voter came for voting twice then the image comparison module checks the finger print image against already voted voters finger print. So we can identify fraud voting.
